IEEE-RAS/IFRR School of Robotics Science
The School of Robotics Science is a joint initiative promoted by the IFRR and the IEEE-RAS with the aim of providing a selected number of robotics students and young researchers with an educational opportunity of the highest scientific level, which shall represent a fundamental milestone in their careers and will enable them to feed and grow their potential to become the top robotics scientists world-wide. The focus on robotics research of the IFRR, combined with the large membership and qualified experience in education of the IEEE-RAS, provides a unique opportunity for a full coverage of the robotics community, in terms of theoretical and experimental topics, researchers, and geographical spreading
